    You don't have to stay awake at work as a Mattress Firm intern.

    The intern, who will be based at Mattress Firm's headquarters in Houston, will be responsible for testing beds, creating written and video reviews for the store's website, offering sleeping tips on Facebook Live streams and generating videos that highlight Houston residents' sleeping habits.

    "We are excited to hire our first ever Snoozetern," said Chief Marketing Officer Scott Thaler in a news release. "It's not every day that an intern is hired to sleep on the job, but that's just one of many perks."

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    The job is paid but part time. Applicants must be 18 or older and "proficient in napping, regardless of time of day." But Mattress Firm also wants applicants to know how to use a variety of video editing software, according to the snoozetern website. Applications are due July 23.
